Happy Monday, everyone! I'm back with a vengeance! As you guys may have seen, I've been a bit MIA from the blogging world, but now that the first week of school is out of the way, I think I can get backt o some sorta of normality in the blogging world. I've got tons on my to-do list for the week, including my Me, Myself and I post from this month so you guys can get to know me better!
But let's get on with the motivation! Have you ever had someone tell you they were dreaming of success? Or, better yet, have you ever had someone say something like, "you're so lucky" to you about your success? Well, next time you hear that, just quote Estee Lauder!
I absolutely love this quote! I think it's perfect! The word success is so loaded, but you have to work for it. I'll diverge for one moment and tell you all a story. It's slightly political, so if I lose any fans over this, I apologize in advance.
A while back, I was having an argument over facebook (yea, it was that faceless) with a friend of a friend. My friend had stated something about how it's not fair how much the middle class got taxed and I chimed in saying that I was not happy that Romney pays less taxes than I do while trying to make a decent life for myself off of less than 20k. This guy proceeded to tell me that Romney didn't pay more taxes than me and then told me that I shouldn't be jealous of others' success and that I should work harder to be successful. Well, needless to say, I'm not one to let something like that go. I pulled out the grad school card. You can bet telling him that I'd be receiving my PhD from an Ivy league school in about six years shut him up.
Where am I going with this? Everyone defines success differently, so think before you tell someone they're not successful.
How do you define success in your life? Are you feeling successful?
